to what is. >>> the following limited commercial presentation is made possible by bank of america. >>> as dawn broke on washington, d.c., 50 years ago today, no one knew what to expect. dr. martin luther king, junior had been up most of the night in his room writing and rewriting the speech he was to give that day, though the most sub lime passage would never appear on that page. the earliest press reports that morning suggested that only about 25,000 people would show up. organizers of the march on washington for jobs and freedom were nervous. putting out fires, working behind the scenes to keep the collision behind the march in tact and preparing to channel the sea of humanity that they hoped to call forth. and then the buses and the trains came, and the people came with them by the thousands. and by that afternoon, more than 200,000 people, black and white spread out before the shadow of the great emancipator, disciplined and skeweding the spirit of solidarity. they listened to speakers one by one who called the nation to meet the demands that justice placed upon it, and about
in this day and time. america has evolved but there's still more work to do for all people. >> everyone here to work together for the same common cause. make it happen. a truly amazing . he was a matted mess in a small cage. so that was our first task, was getting him to wellness. without angie's list, i don't know if we could have found all the services we needed for our riley. from contractors and doctors to dog sitters and landscapers, you can find it all on angie's list. we found riley at the shelter, and found everything he needed at angie's list. join today at angieslist.com >>> today dr. king's i have a dream speech is widely celebrated, but 50 years ago not everyone believed in the dream. far from it. just hours after the speech, here's what some southern senators told nbc news. >> the negros in this country more automobiles than they do in any other country. they have got clothes and a house here than in any other country in the world. no one is deprived of freedom. i know that. >> what i plan to fight for is the right of a man to choose the neighbors among whom he will live, the ri
malleable, slippery, our notions of merit are in the context of higher education and opportunity in america in general. our official ideology, of course, here in the united states, is level playing field, but we want a level playing field that will select the people we think should be winning the race. joining me now is randall kennedy, professor of law at harvard university. author of the book "for discrimination: race, affirmative action and the law" which comes out next month. professor kennedy, did the results of this study surprise you? >> no, it didn't surprise me. after all, people will often favor the policy that is good for them and their group. so it shouldn't be any surprise that there would be some white people who would downgrade, let's say, grade point average or test scores if those in merit aren't working in their favor. >> we often think of the debate over affirmative action in a kind of battle over a zero sum fixed pie of educational resources, as involving white people and black people, or white people and black or brown people. one of the things i thought was interesting
'"i've been an america since birth." he refused to speculate whether or not he'd be eligible to run for president. he said he was going to leave that to legal scholars. >> you know, it's interesting that ted cruz, this has come to sort of bite him back, all of the worry about birth certificates and so forth have come back to bite ted cruz. that the reason being that basically that all this noise had been made over barack obama's birth certificate, and so now ted cruz is forced to litigate this, in my mind, ludicrous absurd issue precisely because there was such a long sustained movement on the american right to question barack obama's birth certificate and whether he, himself, could actually be president of the united states. >> reporter: a couple things on that. cruz was asked, also, if there are any similarities between his situation and questions about his citizenship, and the questions that president obama faced that eventually led him to release his long-form birth certificate. cruz also refused to speculate on that. so he wouldn't, you know, distance himself from it. he also w
to the british government that we had this material already in america and glenn greenwald has it in brazil, it seemed to me to misunderstand the nature of digital communications to be destroying a hard disk in london. but as they were adamant they would go to law, i thought it was simpler to get on with the reporting from america and destroy the copies that we had in london. >> which means agents from the uk government came to "the guardian's" offices with, what, sledgehammers? with -- i mean, honestly, how did it -- like, physically, how did it go down? there was a hard drive on the floor and you watched as agents of the government battered the thing? >> well, this might seem a nice distinction, but i was not going to hand these, this material to the government in any way. so i said we would destroy it, but if they wanted to supervise the destruction, when they could. so they sent along two technicians from gchq. that's the equivalent of the nsa. and they advised on what you have to do in order to destroy a machine so that it is of no use to anybody else and nothing can be retrieved from
. if we want to restore america's image, in my opinion, in the region, we need -- >> the process internationally is important. >> absolutely. third, we need to make sure this is not about a strike, this is about creating a coalition government on the long term, making sure there's stability in syria, no civil war. >> the amount of appetite, domestically, politically in the united states for that is nil. zainab salbi. thank you. >>> the idea the obama administration is in cahoots with the muslim brotherhood in egypt can be traced back to one sitting republican congressman. i'll tell you that story coming up. out progressive's "name your price" tool? i guess you can tell them how much you want to pay and it gives you a range of options to choose from. huh? i'm looking at it right now. oh, yeah? yeah. what's the... guest room situation? the "name your price" tool, making the world a little more progressive. >>> have you ever been a patient in a hospital, you know a few things. first you don't get much sleep. second when you get home you get a lot of bills. third, those bills will pr
large-scale hunger malnutrition and starvation in america. >> you really believe that? >> no question whatsoever. >> you're just laughing. >> absolutely preposterous. >> you and your volunteers stop and explain food stamps to just about every person on the street. >> yes. >> it could be construed as recruitment. >> the 29-year-old has chosen the life of a beach bum in this seaside paradise. jason has for the last couple years floated from place to place, staying with family, pals and girls he's dated. >> a nice day today, though, huh? >> he gets by with a little help from his friends, and you. the taxpayer. >> it just a question of money and benefits, then you can diminish their incentive to work and achieve and to rise above difficult circumstances. i think there's a real moral question here. >> food stamps, as a special program, is one of the most obvious ways in which the government has reached into american neighborhoods and says, it's okay to be dependent. >> thank you, taxpayers. thanks. >> do you feel guilty at all about doing this? >> [ bleep ] no. >> now, let me take a second
've got russia with 8,500 nuclear weapons, you've got america with 7,700 nuclear weapons. and then you've got this long drop to third place which is france with 300 nuclear weapons. i mean, they probably even kill, like, a billion people. one thing to know, by the way, is these aren't your grandfather's nuclear weapons. i mean that very literally. these weapons are typically 10 to 50 times as powerful as the bombs dropped on hiroshima. just keep that in mind. now, the reason i bring this up is not abstract. a couple years ago when it looked like relations between the u.s. and russia were improving, when we were having the great reset, as it was called, nuclear disarmament was on the table. we were potentially going to begin drawing this armory down. we passed the s.t.a.r.t. treaty which limited both countries to having only about 1,550 fully operational and deployed nuclear weapons beginning in 2018. now, look, that's still enough to blow up the world quite a few times, but, you know, baby steps toward not having armageddon. and the hope is that we could keep going further than s.t.a.r
. this happens throughout america. and any police jurisdiction. you have to do it. >> that appearance coincided with a predictably defensive editorial by mayor michael bloomberg in the "washington post" in which the mayor took turns defending stop and fricsk and attacking the "washington post," itself, and others were criticizing the practice saying "the men and women who protect our city from criminals and terrorists deserve better than to have their integrity impugned in a courtroom or a newspaper especially when the facts are so clearly on their side." even today speaking at a press conference, touting the largest gun seizure in new york history, both men looked to play up the role of stop and frisk in getting guns off the street. >> wiretap conversations from this investigation show that one of the gun traffickers' biggest concerns was stop, question, frisk. >> campbell didn't want to risk it being found by new york police and is heard saying, "yeah. i'm in charlotte now. i can't take them to my house, to my side of town, in brownsville. we got, like, watchamacallit, stop and frisk. >> mayo
illegal. it's an illegal and international standard. if we want to restore america's image, in my opinion, in the region, we need -- >> the process internationally is important. >> absolutely. third, we need to make sure this is not about a strike, this is about creating a coalition government on the long term, making sure there's stability in syria, no civil war. >> the amount of appetite, domestically, politically in the united states for that is. zainab salbi. thank withdryou. >>> the idea the obama administration is in cahoots with the muslim brotherhood in egypt can be traced back to one sitting republican congressman. i'll tell you that story coming up. being active. and being with this guy.

? >> it's the fact we in america, biggest gross waste of american money, american taxpayer dollars in our country. it doesn't make our communities safer. in fact, i think it makes our communities more dangerous. it wastes obviously taxpayer dollars and suppresses the truth of who we are. we say we're the country of freedom and justice yet we incarcerate more people in america than any other country on the globe. you see every single day in cities like newark the profoundly awful impact of the criminal justice system, even the police officers that i ride around with at night, they feel like they're stuck on this treadmill going nowhere. they can name people on street corners. that's how well they've gotten to know them. if you're a murder victim in newark, a victim in my city, it's an 8 85 pk chance you've bn arrested before an average of ten times. on both sides people are going through this crazy game. police, individuals. that we could stop with common sense solutions. >> how much of that can be corrected at the federal level? obviously policing is a local endeavor. criminal justice sys
's a precept that's not unique to america. it's just something that should apply everywhere. >> that law which bans gay pride rallies and opposes fines for giving information about lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender communities to minors. last night, jay leno made known his thought of the law. >> to me this is germany in 1953. they never tell you, how did that happen. hitler becomes dictator and rounds up all the jews. but how -- this is how it starts, you go for the homosexuals, and then you go for the jews, and pretty soon they come for you. >> the public's attention is now squarely focused on russia's human rights abuses, and the president of the united states weighing in on them so publicly, it means something, it means that the relationship between the u.s. and russia is in rapid decline. the president is trying to stop it. it was the big reset. president obama and dmitri medvedev, not only seem to personally like each other. they were getting stuff done on arms reduction, for example. today that promise of a normal healthy relationship between the two one-time adversaries is all but
equal america, equally, socially, and racially. joining us is gary young, author of a new book, "the speech: story behind martin luther king's dream." and also with us, peter yairy. i've been looking at footage of ed and you and bob dillen performing. and here's my question to you, if you could time travel back to that peter yarrow, who was looking out on the crowd, think about this moment and the next 50 years, what would you say to him? what would be most surprising to him about what actually happened, both in a good way, and in a bad way? >> we have a black president today. it was unthinkable. there are no more lynchings without recourse, legal recourse, anymore. we have a black america that is fully integrated with a white america. and on the negative side, we have the cradle-to-jail pipeline for young black men with, you know, millions in an industry that is supported with huge, huge dollars. and we have gun violence, we have stand your the ground, we have huge new problems. so we must celebrate -- i'm talking to myself, okay? hello, peter. we must -- in the future, you will cel
.com/mutualfunds. >>> i'm chris hayes. join me as we examine the challenge of climate change and what america can do to meet it. >>> it's already 2013 and we still haven't seen any flying cars like we were promised in so many movies and tv shows about the future. but we look to be on a precipice of an absolute automotive revolution that could save the planet and your life. >>> first i want to share the three awesomest things on the internet today beginning with one man's quest for religious freedom. nukosh novi of the czech republic fought the government for the right to wear a head covering in his i.d. he belongs to the church of the flying spaghetti monster. the devout are encouraged to wear a pasta screener on their heads. they call themselves pasta-farians. as think progress reports a check government spokesperson says mr. novi's request complies with the laws of the czech republic is permitted if it does not hide the face to which we say, thanks be to god ramen. >>> the second awesomist thing on the internet is a humbling public service announcement. the inventor of gif pronounces it like jif.
it meant to succeed in america to achieve the american dream was to own a home. >> a home is the ultimate evidence that here in america hard work pays off, that responsibility is rewarded. you know, i think about my grandparents' generation. when my grandfather served in world war ii, he fought in patten's army. when he got back, this country gave him a chance to go to college on the gi bill but it also gave him a chance to buy his first home with a loan from the fha. to him and to generations of americans before and since, a home was more than just a house. it was a source of pride and a source of security. >> that's talk we've heard for years. you might recall george w. bush's ownership society. but then the president addressed the fact not everyone can or even should buy a home and suggested a re-examination of current policy affecting renters. >> in the runup to the crisis, banks and governments too often made everybody feel like they had to own a home even if they weren't ready and didn't have the payments. that's a mistake we should not repeat. instead, let's invest in affordable re
for and i believe that that's a precept that's not unique to america. that is something that should apply everywhere. >> that law, which bans gay pride rallies and imposes fines for giving information about the lesbian, gay, buyisexuality has- jay leno himself made an analogy. >> this is germany in 1933. i mean i think you and i are of that generation, they never told you how did that happen. i mean, okay -- >> right. hitler becomes dictator and rounds up all the jews this. is how it starts. you go for the homosexuals and the jews and pretty soon they come for you. >> the public's attention is now squarely focused on russia's human right as becauses and the president of the united states weighing in on them so publicly, it means something. it means that the relationship between the u.s. and russia is in rapid decline and the president no longer trying to stop it. it's a relationship that just a few years ago seemed to be on the mend. it was called the big reset. president obama and then russian president obama dmitry medvedev not only seemed to today, that promise of a normal healthy rela
are the true vicks of racial prejudice and animus in america. it takes quite a bit of reality avoidance to construct and maintain this myth, as any cursory glance of data on incarceration or income and unploim cu unemployment can inform you. fox & company have been remarkably effective in getting people to believe this. trotting out this recent survey from rasmussen, 33% of respondents think most blacks are racist, 15% say most whites are racist. in the wake of george zimmerman's acquittal and national conversation on race profi profiling, ufox has been workin overtime, to say, look, white people are the victims of black people. it is, let's not be -- it is a grossly cynical undertaking. but i suppose it's their job. first, o'reilly and others showed this video on loop of three boys beating another boy. the attempt to inflate that incident into some kind of racial symbol more or less failed. and so fox started to look around for another story. and when the truly horrific details emerged of the brutal murder of chris lane, they got aid head of themselves. an australian transfer student a
